Print-Friendly Format in People-Friendly Language
An informal survey:
- Salon: 'Print' icon + label, and the resulting page reads, 'To print this page, select Print from the File menu of your browser'
- New York Times: 'Printer-Friendly Format' icon +label (but, it's the person we're being friendly to, right?)
- CNET: 'Printer-friendly format' text link
- SJ Mercury News: 'print this' icon + label
- Yahoo News: 'Print Story' icon + text link
I don't want to give the impression that by clicking that link the page will be printed, 'cause it won't, so 'Print...' doesn't work for me. I'm leaning towards 'Printing-Friendly Format''.
